democratic. it cannot be both. >> that is just the beginning. much more to talk about. and charlie sheen just unleashed himself on the president-elect. now wishing, not making this up, wishing death upon donald trump. imagine if somebody did that to president obama or hillary clinton. do you think the media would be outraged? mornings are better with friends. good morning. happy thursday, everybody. we are here. >> wow. >> we have made it. almost to the end of the week. >> we are going into the end of the week strong. we have a couple more big days. >> every day we sit here and say, what are we going to do for the three hours? >> we survived the hour and 15 minute speech from john kerry yesterday. i think we'll make it through today. >> we have a lot to talk about. we have heather with headlines this morning. >> hi, good morning. good morning, everybody. hope you're off to a great day,
3:02 am
thursday it is. we'll start off with a fox news alert. death by a broken heart. hollywood legend debbie reynolds passing away just a day after her daughter carrie fisher. according to tmz, reynolds told her son, i miss her so much, i just want to be with carrie. just hours before she was rushed to the hospital for a suspected stroke. reynolds was an acclaimed actress, dancer and singer whose career spanned nearly seven decades. ♪ good morning good morning to you ♪ >> debbie reynolds was 84 years old. no word on plans for her and her daughter carrie fisher. and an explosive crash killing two servicemen after their apache helicopter plunges into the water. the national guard chopper was flying unusually low and broke apart in the air before crashing into galveston bay in texas. >> i heard a loud bang, seen
3:03 am
pieces of the prop flying in the air, seen the rest of the crowd turn, like it was turning upside down and started nosediving down towards the ground. >> the military officials say the unidentified soldiers were conducting a routine flight when they crashed. divers jumped into the water to recover the bodies. it is not clear what caused the crash, but we are praying for those families this morning. a parting shot for russian president vladimir putin. president obama set to announce sanctions against russia as soon as today over its alleged interneerinte interference in the 2016 election. many insist an iron fist is the only way to stop russian meddling. >> vladimir putin is a thug and a bully and a murderer. he understands strength. and that's all that he understands. and we're still the strongest nation on earth. we just have to do it right. >> well, russia is still denying
3:04 am
all those accusations promising sanctions of its own against washington. we'll follow that story throughout the day. and for the first time in 40 years, the catholic bishop will participate in the presidential inauguration. the archbishop of new york timothy cardinal dolan, one of six faith leaders taking part in next month's swearing in of president-elect donald trump. ryan kilmeade taking a holy stroll with the cardinal just last week. >> i said, you know, if you want, on the sunday before your inauguration, why don't you come on down the block. >> the cardinal will be reading from scripture and giving the invocation at the january 20th ceremony in washington, d.c. and those are your headlines. he is such a great person to ask for that. talking about cardinal dolan. >> we do love cardinal dolan. thank you, heather. all right. so two big speeches yesterday,
3:05 am
kind of a war of words, between secretary of state john kerry yesterday and benjamin netanyahu. let's take a look back. >> friends need to tell each other the hard truths. and friendships require mutual respect. they fail to recognize that this friend, the united states of america, that has done more to support israel than any other country, the israeli prime minister publicly supports a two-state solution. but his current coalition is the most right-wing in israeli history with an agenda driven by the most extreme elements. the status quo is leading towards one state and perpetual occupation. here is a fundamental reality. if the choice is one state, israel can either be jewish or democratic, it cannot be both.
3:06 am
>> i must express my deepest disappointment with the speech today of john kerry, secretary kerry talked about the campaign against the islamic state for nearly a century. israelis do not need to be lectured about the importance of peace by foreign leaders. israel's hand has been extended in peace to its neighbors from day one from its very first day. >> yeah, john kerry there talking about friends telling each other hard truths. that was a playoff of previous war of words where benjamin netanyahu said friends do not take friends to the security council at the u.n. which is what he felt the u.s. was abstaining last friday, when it started this whole deal, not shielding israel. but yesterday, just going on, when you have a democratic senator chuck schumer saying, while he may not have intended it, i fear secretary kerry in his speech and actions at the
3:07 am
u.n. had emboldened extremists on both sides. that's chuck schumer, that is the incoming democratic leader in the united states senate. it is bipartisan outrage. it was a one-sided speech. it was real reality tv yesterday. i mean, john kerry gives a 90-minute speech rambling. one of the things where he said it six times and somehow it became more prominent. or 16 times. it's almost as if he knew exactly what john kerry was going to say, which is a condemnation of israel. we have the stats of what was mentioned during john kerry's speech. one mention of iran, one of hezbollah, four times of hamas, seven times of terrorism. 14 times of occupation. and 42 times settlements. he used the words of the left, of anti-semitism, frankly, of the occupation. it's offensive.
3:08 am
and netanyahu has a great question, how do you make peace of someone who rejects your very existence? how do you do that? >> how do you even come together or have conversations? and also something that netanyahu said in the speech, president obama and his administration over the last eight years kept being told over and over again, we'll work together and have the conversations. so for them, this came out of nowhere, even though this was, as they said, they have got real proof this was preorchestrated and planned behind scenes. netanyahu said that yesterday. but i found this interesting with a new chapter beginning. we mentioned this yesterday, maybe a backlash that could happen after -- >> and to pick up the pieces, it's donald trump for president-elect. maybe netanyahu praised donald trump and donald trump was on twitter yesterday saying among other things, we cannot continue to let israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. they used to have a great friend in the u.s., but not anymore. the beginning of the end was the horrible iran deal.
3:09 am
and now this, u.n.! stay strong, israel, january 20th is fast approaching. so netanyahu also said to president-elect trump, thank you for your friendship with israel. this will be a heavy lift to pick up the pieces from what the obama administration has done. >> absolutely. a lot of people are reporting from behind the scenes, the private position of the obama administration coming into public. and they have been sort of badgering israel to say, hey, your settlements are the impediment to peace, but this is offensive. settlements are equivalent to suicide bombers. you're dealing with an ideology that still teaches in their schools that you should be killed. >> "the washington post" today is editorializing that the obama administration is on the right side of history here despite what you just said. >> sure. >> but i'm saying, you've got the mainstream media saying this is the right way to go. >> yesterday was the last gasp
3:10 am
of the two-state solution and the mainstream media believing somehow this fantasy piece they hope to exist will exist. you need a partner on the other side that has not existed for a long time for israel. donald trump is about to usher that in. >> the obama administration is talking about their leg sip. this is a strong eight years for them, but you listen to what john kerry said yesterday, he kept saying over and over again, we have a great relationship with israel. things have been wonderful over the past eight years. >> is anybody buying it? >> then you listen to netanyahu and say, where is the disconnect? that's not how they are feeling. >> rhetoric versus reality, right? if our congress is talking about cutting off funding to the u.n. because of what was just done with the demonstration of how far we have fallen. this is a reflection of congress more so than necessarily president obama. >> a lot on the foreign policy for the president-elect as he gets ready to come to power. meanwhile, he's not slowing down and making these big economic deals that could help
3:11 am
us here at home. >> yes, another big announcement. >> 8,000 more jobs from sprint. all kinds of action down there. >> here's what he put out yesterday. >> i just got a call from the head people at sprint. and they are going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the united states. they are taking them from other countries. they are bringing them back to the united states. and also, one web, a new company, is going to be hiring 3,000 people. so that is very exciting. >> this comes at an interesting time. if you look at consumer confidence, this is the highest point since before the recession. since 2001. >> since 2001. and you've got the dow edging closer and closer to 20,000. it hasn't quite gotten there yet. i'm certainly not saying that's because of the election of donald trump -- >> you can say that. >> but i think, look, presidents have to deal with the bad news when they come into office. and so now you're dealing with the peace process that we have
3:12 am
been talking about. and you'll have to deal with it, like it or not, you have to figure out how to go forward. but sometimes good news comes in, you're the recipient of it, and look, he's trying to build on it. he's not sitting around to say, okay, the economy is starting to hum here, this is good. he's trying to get more deals and get this going. >> on election night, the futures market was down 700 points. immediately, reaction was to donald trump, but the last thousand points in the dow is the bullish market saying, hey, we think what he'll bring in will improve the economy. when you hear more news like this quick wind is what they call them, that's great. it does instill confidence. consumer confidence believes because the consumer believes in the future. that is more important than the stock market. >> and you know what he's doing that really makes a difference? he has an actual conversation, whether it is on the phone, whether it is in person, one-on-one, that's how you make deals. that's how you figure this out. >> he did write a book about that.
3:13 am
>> are you tired? he looked a little tired. i didn't know why, now i do. >> he also said sorry. i'm sorry! >> people just can't handle it. all right. more to come on the show. no clinton support, no service. that restaurant owner who banned trump voters is now speaking out for the very first time. so does he regret it? we'll play that tape. >> i hope he does. and what happens when a pint-sized basketball player goes one-on-one with an overconfident stranger in the middle of the street? whoa! those are handles there, that's what they call it. he broke her down. liberty mutual stood with me when i was too busy with the kids to get a repair estimate. i just snapped a photo and got an estimate in 24 hours. my insurance company
3:14 am
definitely doesn't have that... you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™ liberty mutual insurance when it comes to heartburn... trust the brand doctors trust. nexium 24hr is the #1 choice of doctors and pharmacists for their own frequent heartburn. for all day and all night protection... banish the burn... with nexium 24hr. afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me.
3:15 am
3:16 am
we could not in good conscience protect the most extreme elements of the settlement movement as it tries to destroy the two-state solution. now we may not be able to stop them, but we cannot be expected to defend them. if the choice is one state, israel can either be jewish or democratic, it cannot be both. >> attacking an ally. secretary kerry delivering a blistering speech against israel following the u.n. vote on israel's settlement. >> so what are israelis living in those settlements thinking this morning about the speech? daniel lorea is one of those living there in east jerusalem. thank you for your time. >> thank you for having me. >> the u.n. says this is occupied territory. tell us what it is like to live there and what israelis are
3:17 am
feeling this morning? >> well, first of all, i work all the time in what the world refers to as east jerusalem. so from our point of view, it's the eternal capital of the jewish people. and the reaction is there is not much the world can do about it. friends don't put friends in danger. to ask us to put a terrorist on our back doorstep when we have one on the gaz a strip is just phenomenal. friends that understand we have a four-year history with jeer jerusalem and the land of israel. the people are concerned about the occupation or illegal settlement is just astounding. the two-state solution in addition to that is clearly an oxy moron. you can't have two states when
3:18 am
one wants to destroy the other state. i live in a regular city of 40,000 people, five minutes outside the city of jerusalem. i work with every day regular people. we do not teach our children to make molatov cocktails or throw stones. and that's what we're up against. so in addition to the fact that israel is the jewish homeland, so it is impossible for us to be illegally occupying our homeland, we're surrounded by millions of people who are being driven into the sea. >> your voice is so important. where you are is where everyone is affected by the resolution. help people better understand watching this at home here in the united states and afar, help them understand the impact of this resolution. >> well, let's put it this way. the size of israel is the size of new jersey, 7,000, 8,000
3:19 am
square miles. to even think of dividing up that area as a terror state is totally absurd. it cannot be. to think that we have literally already today missiles, thousands of missiles coming to regular cities is ircome prehenceable. there are plenty of arab that is live side by side, but there are too many that want to see the end and do not recognize the smallest jewish entities. what the world doesn't understand is that we're not moving. so terror isn't going to drive us out. >> sure. daniel, i was in israel a couple months ago visiting judea and is a maria -- samaria, what is the biggest misconception that the world has about these settlements? >> well, i speak to many americans overseas, and it seems
3:20 am
we live in shacks on hilltops. we are talking about close to 800,000 views today living in judea and somaria. the views were displaced here, so if anyone was illegally occupying, it was the jews. jews were the ones, we're the ones displaced and yet the world says we are the occupiers? there's something distorted about that thinking. regular people, beautiful cities, who are not teaching hate or incisement. >> daniel, such an important voice to hear this morning. thank you for being with us. >> pleasure, thank you. have a good day. coming up, the amazon echo may be able to solve a murder, but the company refuses to give over the evidence. should amazon hand this over to
3:21 am
authorities? and making a comeback. instead of rallying against big government they are arguing for more starring the one and only bernie sanders. maybe jill stein, too. we'll see. e. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... which adds fuel to my bottom line. what's in your wallet?
3:22 am
does that mean they have to grow apart from their friends,s older or from the things they love to do? with right at home, it doesn't. right at home's professional team thoughtfully selects caregivers to help with personal care, housekeeping, meals - and most of all, staying engaged - in life. oh, thank you, thank you. you're welcome, are you ready to go? oh, i sure am. we can provide the right care, right at home.
3:23 am
3:24 am
good morning, again. time for a squik loquick look a headlines. bernie sanders is helping to mold the future of the democratic party and fight the president-elect's agenda. the progressives said they are learning from past failures to occupy wall street. and hillary clinton seen eating alone at a resort? upstate new york. looking a little down, maybe. she's largely been out of the public loss except for the hiking snapshots in chappaqua. abby? thank you, ed. it's one of the hottest holiday gifts of the season. >> alexa, what is on the calendar today? >> you have 12 events scheduled. >> listen to this, now it could help police solve a murder case. authorities in arkansas issuing a warrant for information from a man's amazon echo device who was accused of strangling and drowning a man in a hot tub.
3:25 am
detectives hope to pull clues from the device always listening to alexa. amazon refusing that information. the question is, should it? here's the former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney jonathan stillmore. it's amazing how many questions alexa can answer. you both have different perspectives on this. you say amazon should hand over the evidence, why? >> the more evidence a better. we know a homicide occurred and this device is capable of recording audio. that's probably cause to think that the device has evidence related to a crime. that means the constitutional standard is met. if i'm a prosecutor seeking that warrant, if i'm a judge, i'm signing that warrant. >> here's what amazon says. amazon will not release customer information without a valid and
3:26 am
binding legal demand properly served on us. we object to overboard or otherwise inappropriate demands as a matter of course. you're on their side to say they should not release it. >> i applaud them. amazon has a duty to its customers to withhold any information from the government without, in this case, without basically a court order. what amazon is essentially saying here is, look, your arkansas search warrant is not enough to compel us to turn the information over. what will happen at this point then is either, remember when apple was refusing to create code to unlock the phone for the san bernardino killers? same thing, there was a standoff there. so now the choice for arkansas is, all right, maybe i'll get a judge involved to compel you to. or we'll find another way to get it. but i think one of the most important points here is alexa is not going to solve this crime. she's not going to say it was colonel mustard in the kitchen with a candlestick. she doesn't record full conversations.
3:27 am
so what information are they going to get? and how valuable will it be? >> that's the big question, we don't know. maybe there could be something on alexa. once you say, alexa, what is the weather today? it starts recording. they can hear your voice. maybe there is something and potentially could be the only evidence they might have. >> any time you seek a search warrant there's speculation because you don't know what could be in the home or in the device or the car you're looking to search. so you're always speculating a little bit. but this could help the defense because theoretically, just like evidence points the finger at someone, evidence can exonerate someone. if it turns up something, the defense lawyer says, they seized his alexa, that's a reason to find my client not guilty. we want to follow the evidence. the more evidence we have, the more confident we can be in any verdict, guilty or not guilty. >> but keep in mind, if they took the alexa device and dissected and got jewels they can get from that, that's great. the investigators are looking to a third-party to help convict a potential suspect. that's like, if i send you an
3:28 am
e-mail, and the police come to your house because i sent you an e-mail and want to search your computer, the right to seize evidence is not infinite. that's why we have the fourth amendment. >> you know what? i have a feeling this will be the first of many debates, many, with alexa and so many other devices out there. >> we live in that world now. >> thank you for breaking this down. coming up, the deadline is months away, but now is the time to shrink your tax bill. chris hogan has the best financial advice money can buy and is answering your questions, next. and then three teenagers stranded miles from land. their boat sinking, life jackets trapped under water. how they managed to call for help just in time. that is next. and this story is crazy, charlie sheen just unleashed on the president-elect. now wishing death upon him. imagine if someone did that to hillary clinton or president obama. we'll talk about that. but first, happy birthday to our friend jon voight.
3:29 am
he's 78 years old today. >> you guys are the best. i go right to the television set and am watching you guys.
3:30 am
3:31 am
winner winner chicken dinner, i don't think so. winner winner sheen dinner. if you borrow my brain for five seconds, then you're like, dude, i can't handle it! i have a different heart. i am on a drug, it's called the charlie sheen. and it's not available because if you try it once, you'll die. it comes from my grand wizard master. duh, winning! i win here and win there. now what? >> there was so much in that one-minute sound bite. >> it's amusing but -- charlie
3:32 am
sheen has been a mess for a long time. and now he goes on social media last night after the death of debbie reynolds, her daughter had just died, carrie fisher, within 24 hours has a stroke and dies. there's all this talk about celebrity deaths this year, david bowie, george michael, and so what does charlie sheen do? he goes after donald trump and wishes that he died. >> look what he tweeted, he tweeted this after he said, the deaths of debbie reynolds and carrie fisher, dear god, trump next, please! trump next, please! trump next, please! he goes on and on and on. >> just imagine, i mean, the nice way to look to these things is to flip it. imagine if that was tweeted about barack obama or hillary clinton or anyone else. he would be accused of sexism, racism or another ism. >> how does anyone in the right
3:33 am
mind think this is okay to tweet? >> he went on the apology tour to say he had hiv and a drug problem. >> there's more there, i would think. >> now we've got to do this? come on. it's so ridiculous and absurd. >> i think it's because the left is in an alternate universe. it's okay to say these types of things. if donald trump has this little caveat, they can say whatever they want about him, but everyone else you can't. i really think it's like a hiccup in the brain. >> we talk about the vision of this country, it is coming from tweets like that. >> do you think he's mad that he started the winning thing and donald trump copied it? he's like, i started the winning thing. >> winning! >> you know who is always winning for us? heather, whom we love. >> i love the use of his word
3:34 am
warlock. all right. good morning, everybody. i have a couple quick headlines to bring you. three teens lucky to be alive this morning after a harrowing ordeal while vacationing near the florida keys. the boys forced to climb on top of their rental boat after it started taking on water and capsized two miles off the coast. their lifejackets trapped underneath. but the quick-thinking tweens kept their phones above water. they got a signal and called 911. crews finding them just before sunset. wow. and a disturbing new report revealing corruption at the u.s./mexico border. federal agents taking millions of dollars to let drugs into the united states according to "the new york times". in one case, the agent approved a citizens application in exchange for ten, actually, 100 eggrolls. yeah, that's right. the food. the report shows nearly 200 employees have pocketed nearly $15 million in bribes over the past ten years.
3:35 am
and a restaurant owner sparking outrage for the ant anti-trump sign changing his tune saying it wasn't meant to offend people. >> it wouldn't be offensive. it is just a heads-up. thank you for the info, man. it was a reaction to the election. i wasn't able to vote. >> you heard that right, the guy didn't vote. he plastered this bright yellow hand-written sign on the front door of cafe 8 1/2 in honolulu. if you voted for trump, you cannot eat here. no nazis. really? trump supporters fought back. but the owner didn't regret it but did take down the sign. what happens when you go one-on-one with a basketball prodigy on the streets of new
3:36 am
york city? watch this. you just fall down in the middle of the street. well, let's watch that again. this mini basketball player taking street ball to a new level with this epic crosswalk crossover. an oncoming pedestrian tries to play a little defense. but as you can see, she can't seem to stay on her feet. she was a great sport, though. we don't see any of the guys taking that up. good job, lady. she later posted on twitter, my ankles were destroyed, which in the basketball world means, yeah, i got schooled. henry, you're a big basketball fan, would you have done that to the kid in the crosswalk? >> i would have tried and he would have beaten me. i probably would have fallen on my face. carmelo anthony, he doesn't play defense for the knicks. they lose a lot. but i have to go back to the restaurant owner. he didn't vote. >> he didn't vote. >> jill stein is waking up to that today. i was here! >> it is technically called
3:37 am
broken ankle. now to extreme weather, thousands bracing for impact. >> yeah, the northeast preparing for a weather bomb with heavy rain, snow and gusting winds to close out your career. >> who better to get the weather bomb than senior meteorologist janice dean tracking it all. >> the weather bomb. kind of like the polar vortex. this is going to rapidly intensify off the coast. we call it a nor'easter, but tonight and tomorrow, that's when we'll see the gusty winds. and it's going to intensify. that's why they call it a weather bomb. okay, look at temperatures right now, it's cold. behind the frontal system pushing across the southeast, ahead of that, we've got warmer than average temperatures. they are lucky ducks across the southeast in florida. so let's take a look at the storm. it hasn't bombed out yet. once it gets off the coast and some of the energy is transferred from this area of low pressure across the great lakes, that's when things are going to get interesting. so taking a look at it, we've got rain right now in d.c.
3:38 am
cloudy skies for philadelphia and new york. but it is on its way as we get into the overnight and tomorrow. the big snow totals after this storm bombs out will be across new england where they get upwards of 12 to 24 inches of snow, which is great for the ski resorts. and the other good thing is it will be out of here before new year's eve. there is your silver lining. >> that is good news. >> janice dean, you are the bomb. >> you arejanice. >> go on, go on. we'll talk about basketball here. carmelo anthony, it never ends. what money move should you make before 2017? chris hogan is here next to join us. >> there he is live with us. good morning, sir, how are you? >> i'm fantastic. good morning. >> excellent. we have questions, we'll go straight to the questions that folks have been writing us to let us know what advice they need from you. steve writes from my homestate of minnesota, he says, i have
3:39 am
money left in my health savings account. should i take it out before the end of the year or invest it? or should i leave it there? >> well, i would tell steve, steve, what you want to do is make sure you leave that money there. you've taken the kind of pre-tax option of putting the money in there. leave it there, let it sit there for the next year in case you have some major medical situation. you'll have extra money sitting there waiting to come to your aid. >> that is really good advice. this is norm coming in from kansas. itemizing my taxes each year, any taxes for maximizing my deductions? >> norm, what you want to do is really sit down and take a full-on view of your financial situation. make sure you maximize your charitable contributions, but also don't forget about your charitable donations. whether you're taking things, clothing or materials you're not using, those donations can help you tax-wise as well. all in all, sit down with a tax professional and have them
3:40 am
review the deductions you're taking to see if there's anything you're missing. >> sammy in oklahoma is talking about something a lot of people are wondering about. i need approximately $2,000 in dental work done next year. should i use my flexible spending account to save for this expense or my traditional savings account? put it aside and get ready for next year? >> sammy, if you have access to a flexible spending account, you have a great opportunity to be able to save for these things tax-free. now, remember, with the flexible savings account, you've got to be able to be intentional with the money. because with the flexible spending account, excuse me, if you don't spend that money, you end up losing it. so be very aware, it comes in handy for things that major medical doesn't cover, like vision and dental, so if you have that, use that account. but be very intentional. >> for people who don't know what a flexible spending account is, pete was just whispering to us, what is that? >> well, if your job offers it,
3:41 am
it's a great opportunity to be able to put aside money for medical types of expenses that your major medical doesn't cover. for example, a lot of times people don't have vision coverage or dental coverage. so if you've got a major dental thing in need or a wisdom tooth or braces, that flexible spending account can truly come in handy. >> i'm going to have to look into that. another question here, brandy in north carolina, she writes, i'm going to owe about $800 in taxes for 2016. should i use my emergency fund to pay my tax bill or set up payments throughout the year? >> well, brandy, here's what i really want to help you with. because this is a question a lot of people are going to be asking. any time you set up payments with the irs, there's two things you're dmoupg to be paying. you're going to be paying penalties and interest. remember, your emergency funds are for unexpected emergencies. a tax bill is something we have to prepare for by setting aside the right amount of money. so i want to edge courage you to do that. take on a second job, start to budget.
3:42 am
this $800 is something you can take care of. you have until april 15. so get very intentional and really tighten up your budget and let's get this bill taken care of. >> thank you for being with us this morning and breaking this all down. >> thank you, sir. >> thank you for having me. >> happy new year. coming up, not sure whether to call someone he or she? one school has it figured out. give out gender pronouns. really? and the health and human services secretary, thousands are signing a petition against him. nicole sapphire is here on that, next. here she is. come on in. plan
3:43 am
3:44 am
3:45 am

3:48 am
changes on that. >> what are your thoughts on tom price individually? when you look at the affordable care act, they talk about repealing it and replacing it with something else donald trump says will be better. >> as a physician, having a doctor in position as secretary of hhs is a very exciting thing. i'm cautiously optimistic that he'll listen to the doctors of the nation, not necessarily just a political party. i do think that he has demonstrated leadership qualities when it comes to bringing a better way to health care,especially when it comes to keeping washington out of the exam room. there are some controversial issues at hand when it comes to some of his previous beliefs and policies that we'll have to deal with. >> last thing quickly, planned parenthood. that's a big political issue that will come up. donald trump and tom price talking about defunding it. >> very true. we are at an impasse in an either/or political system. defunding planned parenthood is

3:54 am
more of these protests going through the year. the founders of this movement are proud of the fact that it is a decentralized movement. there are a lot of local chapters, what i would compare it to is back in 2009 when you saw the tea party boil over and you had a lot of local chapters having these protests and town halls that got rowdy in august. we could see a lot of activity in donald trump's first year in office. >> i don't know that i agree that the town halls in tea party were rowdy or violent. >> the second you talk about is the dnc leaks and russia's involvement. >> i would say that this is a big political crisis for the democrats because you have a wide swath of americans essentially believing that donald trump's election might not have been legitimate. but really you have the clinton campaign blaming a lot of their loss on russia and i think
3:55 am
that's a big problem because i've talk to democrats in the city who are mad about it. saying the clinton campaign has not been intro spective enough to see what they have done wrong. >> democrats still upset by the the role of james comey. >> they weren't in july. >> they were happy in july when he said we're not pressing charges. let's start with that news conference that sort of started this whole cycle, watch. >> so in july is when comey basically cleared hillary clinton, said it was just carelessness and republicans were furious. a lot of them believed the election was over and james comey came out at the end of october and said we have more emails. you have republicans mad at comey back in july. then you had democrats mad at comey in october. this is a problem for comey. he's just three years into a ten-year term and the fbi is supposed to be an independent agency, independent of politics. this is going to be a problem for him going forward and for

4:03 am
peace by foreign leaders. >> and his point about the focus, pete, you were talking about this earlier, it's all about beating up israel. when you go throughensions of what john kerry talked about, it was glaring. >> iran was mentioned one. hezbollah once. hams, 4. terrorism, seven. occupations 14 mentions and the settlements 42. >> this was a lecture by john kerry. it was incredibly unbalanced and a line i love from netanyahu is how do you make peace with someone in the palestinians who reject your very existence as a state. that's what he was talking about. if you are going to force a untenable situation on us, you're going to put us in a precarious situation where we can't defend our borders. you are comparing it to suicide bombers which is not a comparison. >> you don't have netanyahu.

4:05 am
living there in neighborhoods. the jews were actually displaced from. if anyone is an illegal occupiers it's the arabs. we're the ones who are dismissed and the world is saying we're the occupiers. >> he's talking about judea and samaria. they are not what the world thinks these are. these are people living in their traditional homeland, biblical homeland who want to live peacefully but they are under perpetual assault because they are jews. that's something we have wanted to get rid of it. israel has one main friend on the world stage and that's been the u.s. when that gets called into question, you could understand why they would be upset. >> he said basically they are waiting over the next three

the media isn't talking about or isn't pushing john kerry on at all is the fact that just over a decade ago, israel completely withdrew from the gaza strip and now bombs are raining down on the southern border of israel. what i would like to know, what i think should be answered is how exactly john kerry plans to, you know, dissolve these settlements without creating a second terror state. these are issues the media is not talking about, they are not defining, they are not pushing back on from our leaders. >> we played a clip earlier of jonathan alter on msnbc talking about how this iran deal is actually a good thing. watch.

american people to believe several flawed assumptions. number one, a one, two-state solution is not the only option. number two, he never talked about the fact that israel has come forward multiple times with a proposal for peace and the palestinians walked away from it every time. they don't want peace. the palestinians. that's the third flaw. they don't want peace. they have said they want israel destroyed and wiped off the face of the earth. big difference. >> to be fair, on another topic at the beginning of the obama administration there were a bunch of republicans like mitch mcconnell who said we're going to try to block him at every turn. that's frustrated president obama. maxine walters talking about she's going to fight this president every step of the way. watch. >> he's called names. he's lied. he's done everything to show that he really doesn't have good values and he can't be trusted. why should we work with someone
4:37 am
that we can't trust? he will tell you one thing today and another thing tomorrow. as a matter of fact, those people who voted for him out to be really concerned about the fact that he's already back pedalled on some of the promises that he made, and no, i have no intention of pretending everything is all right, that we're going to work together. >> she went on to say i won't even meet with him. herman cain, what happened to they go low, we'll go high? >> they are not going to go high and the only people that believe maxine waters are the people that vote for her. everything she said about donald trump is simply not true. she snows and the democrats know they can get away with deceit, divisive comments. not wanting to meet with him is a divisive comment. they know they can get away with dishonesty.

harry reid admitted that he lied about mitt romney's taxes and he's proud of it. nobody believes maxine walters except the people unfortunately who continue to reelect her. >> they are going to fight back. if they do that and donald trump delivers what he said he will deliver is bringing jobs back to this country. yesterday, he announced 8,000 jobs coming to the u.s. and then on top of what he did with carrier. he's not president yet. we'll play some sound from palm beach. >> i was called by the head people at sprint, they are going to bring 5,000 jobs back to the united states. they are taking them from other countries. they are bringing them back to the united states and also one weft, a new company is going to be hiring 3,000 people. that's very exciting. >> your take. >> did you see me raising the roof when i walked in? >> i saw it. >> it's called the tome from the
4:39 am
top and it's driving liberals crazy. people are calling donald trump saying, okay, are you making special deals? i don't know, he's probably saying, no. i'm going to get my tax cuts through. that's what's causing businesses to keep jobs here and bring jobs here. i think the tone from the top, you've seen it, you mentioned about consumer confidence. the stock market that's revealed it. business heads are calling him. it's because of the positive tone from the top, not the negative tone from the top. >> i want to find out where you are going to be on new year's eve. with those moves, i want to be that's an internet meme waiting to happen. >> i'll send you a text. >> herman cain, happy new year. >> what do you think of those dance moves? >> we're going to have to do a competition with john bolton. good morning to all of you. new outrage this morning following president obama's latest land grab by the federal

4:48 am
term interests or the israelis long term interest. >> i met with folks on both of this issue. some acknowledged that facts on the ground have made the two-state solution untenable and even the republican party and its platform removed the two-state solution. is john kerry grasping at an old solution? >> there was never a perfect and easy solution. the problem to me is that i haven't seen any real viable alternatives here other than a negotiated settlement that leads to a two-state solution in terms of bringing peace to the region. i have yet to see one that really fits the bill in the way that this does. again, it's a reach and it's obviously been a generational struggle. a hard work, and compromise on both sides. >> you have to learn the lessons
4:49 am
of history. israel has said we gave away gaza strip and other places to only have them turn into terror states. how do they negotiate in the partner in the palestinians who show no track record to live in peace? >> one thing that needs to happen is the palestinians have to uncategorically israel's right to exist as a sovereign nation. the palestinians have got to for their part stop with the violence, stop with the acts of terrorism or sponsoring of terrorism. israelis are going to have to macon sessions too. what that means is to sleet halt -- to at least halt or seize forever settlement expansion east of the 1967 line. >> we spoke to a settler earlier today who has a different view on that. >> i know. >> what's the first thing president-elect trump can do or should do to advance the ball down the field? >> one thing is he's going to do
4:50 am
he's going to kind of increase cooperation with the prime minister of israel. what i worry is while that will be great for the p.r. aspect of the bilateral relationship between the u.s. and israel. long term, us end bending over backward to accommodate everything that the israeli government wants is not necessarily in our national security interests. >> that's a fine line, but starting to show your friendship means something is needed at this point. >> absolutely. >> he was borderlined and partially -- blinded and partially paralyzed serving our country. his wife became his caregiver. she's had enough with the problems at the va. she's not staying silent anymore. she's back next. first, on this day in 1986, the bangles were topping the

in the early 2000s, so i'm hoping with the new administration coming in, they don't get too aggressive. lenders, of course, they are not real crazy about the bureau because they put a lot of guidelines on them, but i am concerned first about the homeowners more than anybody else. >> sure. the question was is the cbfb too burden some. another question, is dodd-frank? is it being realigned? what will the impact be. >> obviously, the dodd-frank was there for purposes of regulating. i'm concerned that again if we allow all the lenders to basically police themselves, could it get out of hand like you were talking about? there has to be a balance here. the regulations have burdened many of the lenders, but again i want to make sure that we don't go crazy giving people money that really should not have had before that caused part of this problem. i think next year in the real estate, you know, area, and we're going to be covering a lot of this on "property man" next
5:26 am
